Hospice Mid-Northland provides specialist palliative care for patients living in the mid-north from Taupo Bay in the north to Towai in the south and from coast-to-coast, including South Hokianga. This represents a population of approximately 45,000. Our nursing and family support team travel at least 7,500km each month caring for around seventy-five people at any one time.
Far North Community Hospice supports patients living north of Taupo Bay, from coast-to-coast.
We are two of 38 Hospices affiliated with Hospice New Zealand.
We work closely with people and businesses within our communities to raise the funds necessary to continue our valued services. In 2022 Hospice Mid-Northland had an operating budget of approximately $2.2m, with just 37% of our funding coming from government. That leaves around $1.3 each year to continue to provide specialist palliative care services for the wider Mid-Northland community.
Hospice Mid-Northland and Far North Community Hospice teams work hard to raise funds through Hospice Shops, fundraising events, community grants and other initiatives such as Farming for Hospice, bequests and donations. We deeply appreciate the support of our communities.
